  • A recent donation has made this the largest art collection in Maine. The college is right off the highway and a great stop if you need to break up the drive.  more »

  • Absolutely worth the road trip to this museum in Colby, fantastic collection of sculptures by Remington, Oldenburg, and even Eakins! I also like the contemporary wing of Alex Katz's monumental paintings and cut-outs. The Lunder collection is really impressive ranging from American greats like Whistler to O'Keefe to Rembrandt prints.
  • One of my favorite museums in the United States. They have such a great collection of American Art. I could just spend days and days studying and looking. Worth a stop!
  • Nice art museum. Free admission. Nice campus
  • Best college museum in America. The staff, buildings and art are wonderful.
  • The best college or university art museum on the East Coast, maybe in the country. The choices of art are exquisite and serve equally as a destination museum of art and a teaching museum for the fortunate Colby community. A gem.
